Thank you, MacIver Institute, for providing the public with information that Wisconsin mainstream media outlets fail to share.
This story involves the special treatment liberal group Wisconsin Jobs Now is receiving to carry out its pro-Mary Burke get-out-the-vote (GOTV) effort.
In the lead up to the November 4th election, Wisconsin Jobs Now (WJN) is coordinating a massive get-out-the-vote (GOTV) effort to drive Mary Burke supporters to the polls to cast in-person absentee ballots.Why should the vehicles of a Leftist group like Wisconsin Jobs Now be granted this privileged status?
...On Monday, WJN used approximately 10 vans to pick up voters from nine different locations around the city at five specified times throughout the day and delivered those voters to the Zeidler Building, which is located at 841 North Broadway in downtown Milwaukee.
...Mayor Tom Barrett's administration seems to working with WJN in their GOTV efforts. Early in the morning on Monday, a worker from the Department of Public Works put out at least four hoods over meters near the southwest corner of the Kilbourn and Broadway intersection, effectively disabling the pay meters and making the spots a no-cost place to park. WJN vans appeared to park in the now-free spots closest to the corner all day.
WJN workers also were allowed to use a traffic cone in the right-turn-only lane on Kilbourn Avenue to save this area as a parking spot for newly arriving vans to drop off transportees close to the entrance of the building. As a WJN van approached the Zeidler building, it would honk its horn, an on-site WJN staff member would remove the cone from the right turn lane and the van would park for a short time while potential voters went inside to register and vote.
Why is Tom Barrett allowing WJN to be above the law?
This is wrong, and so expected.
